Himba Village Photos
One of the more interesting activities offered by most lodges in the northern region of Namibia, A Himba Village Tour. A cultural tour that offers insight into one of the more interesting tribes of Southern Africa, the last of the true nomadic tribes that still live life as they did a 100 + years ago.
This particular Himba village was a few hundred metres from the Kunene River, a village that had none of the basis that you and I are used too. A collection of mud huts, a few dogs and goats and a central kraal, no WiFi, no running water, no ablutions, to be honest, not a lot was on offer. But this is how they live, and this is what we found absolutely fascinating, we learnt a few words and phrases in the Himba dialect, we learnt about their way of life as well as how they live their lives (being nomads and all) and ended up leaving rather jealous.
These photos were taken while staying at Omarunga Lodge on the Kunene River.
On the map below, if you switch it to "satellite view" and zoom right in, you will see the exact village that we visited :)
